Bees 3 Shrewsbury 1
Rhodes scores his first hat trick!
A Jordan Rhodes hat-trick in the first half sealed an impressive win for in-form Brentford
It was a great performance on a day when most of the teams around us also won. Andy Scott kept faith with the team which beat Aldershot in the week.
Rhodes first goal was a terrific strike from outside the back, before he seized onto a poor backpass for his second and completed his hat-trick with a headed goal (right foot - left foot - head, how versatile is that?). Shrewsbury's consolation goal came from Grant Holt in the second half.
The win sees Brentford retain second place in League Two
Brentford: Hamer, Halls (Williams), Phillips, Bennett (Osborne), Dickson, Newton, O'Connor, Bean, Wood, MacDonald, Rhodes.
